.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice. this is all over the way the white house responded to the deatdeaths of those four americs killed at our u.s. consulate in libya. fresh fallout tonight. congressman peter king, republican from new york, heads the powerful house homeland security committee, saying rice must step down because the account she gave in the days and hours following the attack was plain wrong. here he is earlier today on fox. >> either ambassador was deliberately misleading the american people or she showed and demonstrated such a lack of mr. king says several people with the administration. so did the intelligence change, then, days after the attack, or what? >> well, as you said, fox news has sources that say intelligence officials knew within a day, one day, that it was a terror attack. a spokesman for the director of national intelligence, though, says the information about the attack did evolve over time, but didn't say how long it took. ambassador rice spoke five days after the attack, and congressman king says at >> growing concerns over possible vote
. it was obvious it was a terrorist attack before susan rice came on this show and others saying oh, no, it was a spontaneous attack about a video. it turns out al-qaeda is capable or al-qaeda affiliates are capable of launching terrorist aattackeds on american embassies and in this case quite a sophisticated one. and attacks on the day after in sudan and tunisia and yemen. we have a war going on and the president doesn't want to discuss that so they tried to pretent this was a spontaneous reaction to a video. >> chris: the timeline set out was that we have this early information and then got information that changed. before susan rice did her famous round of five interviews including "fox news sunday" that first sunday after the attack there was a lot of information or at least allegations including the president of libya and i specifically asked her about that who said this was a preplanned terrorist attack and yet they were insisting. she was insisting no, it was spontaneous. >> it was amazing. i think i was on the panel that week and we were all surprised she didn't leave a little m
lawmaker to call for u.n. ambassador susan rice's resignation. he objects to her going on the sunday talk shows two weeks ago and stating that the libya attack appeared to be a spontaneous reaction to an anti-muslim video when there was already evidence that it may have been a terror attack. >> either ambassador rice was deliberately misleading the american people or showed such a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold the position anymore. the entire administration has misinformed the american people, misinformed the world, and she was their spokeswoman, our representative to the world. virtually everything she said was wrong. >> others are praising ambassador rice, a spokesman for president obama saying she's done extraordinary work at the united nations, and the state department says she provided the information there was at the time. another statement, i'm particularly troubled for calls for ambassador rice's resignation. she's a remarkable public servant for whom the liberation of the libya people has been a personal issue and public mission. she's an enormously capa
it gets susan rice off the hook. peter king is calling for her to resign. does that get her off the hook for coming out five days after this happened on five different sunday shows and saying this was spontaneous protest related to this film. i don't think so. we all know what james clapper's office said. we know that they have been evolving on this. but it took five days. >> not only that what she said was unequivocal. why not just say the safest thing that all administration say when they don't want to release information which is the investigation is continuing. we don't have all the information. >> why jump to the conclusion that this is about a film and each at the president's u.n. speech this week he highlighted this film through throughout this u.n. speech leading many to believe that the main issue is this youtube clip that seems relatively insignificant in the grand scheme of siblings charles krauthammer also had a similar take on this and he responded to that james clapper statement last night. take a listen. >> well, you read the dni -- dnr statement it's a cover your rump sta
.n. ambassador susan rice to resign. king says she needs to pay the consequences for misleading americans about what happened in libya. wasting no time, obama administration officials and congressional democrats are coming to rice's defense, saying she went on the sunday talk shows and gave the "best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time." national security council spokesman tommy vitt just-released statement saying rice has done extraordinary work at the united nations and for the american people. the president appreciates the work she does every day and is looking forward to her continued work. congressman king is joining us now with his thoughts on all this. congressman king, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you. >> do you believe that ambassador rice is part of a deliberate cover-up to mislead the public on the events surrounding the attack in banghazi? >> ambassador rice was deliberate misleading the american people or showed a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold that position anymore. the administration has misinformed
is the united nations susan rice. almost two weeks ago she claimed the assault was a spontaneous protest that spun out of control. white house officials admitting it was a coordinated terrorist attack. speaking earlier on fox news, peter king says rice should step down over this. >> the person that was out there. the person that was going to get all the glory, all the morning shows was ambassador rice. to send a clear message to the world and to american people this will not be tolerated, she should resign but also should investigate and find out how high up this went. >> gregg: welcome to a brand-new hour. i'm gregg jarrett. >> heather: i'm heather childers. a new debate rages in washington. what did white house officials know and when did they know it. demand for answers into the shifting accounts coming not just from republicans but lawmakers from both sides of the aisle. attack in benghazi that left four americans dead, including chris stevens, ambassador to libya. molly henneberg is live in washington. >> molly: the white house and state department are defending ambassador susan ric
to the united nations susan rice went on the talk shows it was a chest - orchesterated line. within 24 hours they knew it was a terrorist attack and how did they know that? they have to classify it as a terrorist attack to get the right people in action to go in investigate. that had happened. >> brian: there is a couple of problems with it 24 hours after the attacks we knew, there was intelligence knew. whether ambassador rice or president obama knew. i would have to assume they did know. they went everywhere saying we had no idea and blamed the movie. hilary clinton blamed the movie three times in the after math and jay carny blay amed the movie and president obama in the un podium mentioned the mouvy and not being -- being part of the reason for the killings. charles has a summary. let's listen to them. >> why did they deceive? it is obvious. the attack tock place five days after the democrats had spent ape week in charlotte spiking the football on osama and the only foreign policy achievement of four years they repeated it over and over. and great triumph and then al-qaida sacks the emba
. >> greta: so unusual that a u.n. ambassador, susan rice, got sent out. like they sent her out to dry, send her out to the five sunday shows to look the most foolish. >> and the president goes to the u.n. and says video, video, video. he hung himself out to dry. this is after his press secretary that it is obvious that it was an act of terrorism. there's no rationality to this white house. >> greta: governor, thank you, sir. >> thank you. >> greta: now to a very disturbing question. did the obama administration just flat out lie? the obama administration did know from day one that the attack in our consulate in banghazi was terrorism. why didn't they tell us? is there some reasonable explanation? let's ask state department official hi liz cheney. why didn't we get the truth from the get-go? >> one you heard the president's speech in virginia, he said al-qaeda is on a path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. that's their success, that somehow the killing of bin laden has ended the war. it's an inconvenient fact for them politically if in fact al-qaeda is resurgent across north africa, in
, u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice called the assassination a spontaneous attack. but the same day a top libyan official said the assassination was preplanned. on september 19th, matthew olsen, director of the president's counter terrorism unit confirmed that the assassination was indeed a terror attack why did it take 8 days to confirm that pat caddell is angry about it. >> if a president of either party, i don't care whether it was jimmy carter or bill clinton or george bush or ronald reagan or george h.w. bush had had a terrorist incident and gotten on an airplane after saying something and flown off to a fund raisener las vegas, they would have been crucified. it would have been, it should have been barack -- equivalent for barack obama of george bush's flying over katrina moment. >> but nothing was said at all. and nothing will be said. >> with us now is mr. caddell. so you think this is an organized press suppression of this story? >> well, organized -- whether it's organized is a straight conspiracy, everyone is in on it and doing it and it's a purposeful c
are defending ambassador susan rice. a spokesman for barack obama says she has done extraordinary work for the american people. also democratic senator john kerry called rice, quote a remarkable public servant and state department put out a statement defending rice's comments to those sunday shows. the statement said, quote, at every turn, ambassador rice said she was providing the best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time. based on what was provided to ambassador rice and other senator senior intelligence committee but they knew one day of the assault that it was a coordinated terror attack likely tied to al-qaeda. congressman king wants to know why ambassador rice went on tv five days after the attack and said otherwise. >> the entire administration, miss informed the world and she was our representative to the world explaining what happened. virtually everything she said was wrong and the administration is trying to cover it by saying she was given the best information available at the time. >> molly: a spokesperson for james clapper says assessmen
.n. susan rice claimed the assault was a spontaneous outburst of violence. u.s. officials now admit i was a coordinated terrorist tack. today a leading lawmaker calling on ambassador rice to resign. molly henneberg, who wants the ambassador to step down? >> reporter: it is congressman peter king, the republican chaiuse homeland security committee, the first lawmaker to call for ambassador rice's resignation. he wants to know why she went on sunday talk shows, five days after the attack and said it was a spontaneous event even though king says there was circumstantial evidence that it was a terror attack. >> entire administration has handled this wrong from the start misinformed the american people, misinformed the world she was our representative to the world. supposedly explaining what happened. everything she said was wrong. the administration is now trying to cover it by saying she was given the best information they had available at the time. >> reporter: a state department spokesperson says ambassador rice made it clear when she was discussing the act tack that killed ambassador
it was preplanned within 24 hours after the death of the ambassador. yet susan rice, jay cancer oh, several obama officials going out saying it was a response to the movie. is this a cover-up? >> they lie. there is no question about it. by the way, if the republicans did that, there would be hell to pay. everybody would call for resignations and it would be terrible. but they lie. everybody knew they were lying. they knew almost immediately because it was obviously an attack. this had nothing to do with that stupid nieces made and it was stupid and it was ridiculous. but they lie. they've been lying for years now. they get away with it and the press allows them to get away with it. >> steve: so you're very clear, there are people who are lying about it in the white house. but -- >> they knew they were lying. i mean, they were saying it with a very straight face and they knew they were lying and certainly after the first 24 hours, it became the big lie and they kept doing it and the press allowed them to get away where w it. >> gretchen: why were they lying? >> in order to save face. in order to s
, do you agree it's the fog of war that led people leak jay carney and susan rice to say it's as the result of a ridiculous movie trailer? >> if this wasn't for political reasons it's out of sheer incompetence. and to cover up solyndra and fast and furious, misinformation for political purposes. so the question we have to ask is did they do this out of incompetence or are they liars? >> that's a good question, penny, even just yesterday, james clapper, the director of office of national intelligence came out and said, look, this was sort of our fault. we didn't have all the information right way way. however, witnesses on the ground, they seemed to know it was a terrorist attack and as we now know the white house internally labeled it as a terror attack and they knew there were the al-qaeda off shoots, may have been preparing stuff for september 11th. is this a failure of intelligence? >> again, let us go back. there's a lot of different informati information, and in a responsible manner and go out-- the president, i'll remind everybody, the president the day after in his st
of u.n. ambassador susan rice because of her handling of the u.s. consulate attack in benghazi. u.s. intelligence is saying there is evidence that the attack was initially planned. initially, the administration had maintained they believed the attacks in libya were spontaneous reaction to the offensive video that rocked the middle east and beyond. could the direct sort of politicizing of the benghazi attack snowball into a full-blown october surprise for the president? what do you think? does the changing discourse about what happened in benghazi ultimately cause harm to the president? >> the thing about an october surprise is it usually has to reinforce some fundamental weakness or arguments from taking place with the president. if you think about the bin laden tape at the end of the 2004 campaign with bush and kerry, bush had been running on this fear and strength and all these issues getting the country animated on this. by the time the surprise happened, it reinforced what the people already believed. the thing that the president and this is why the bin laden assassination sor
, but they sent out susan rice, hillary clinton, cents out jay carney, everybody top down including the president up until yesterday's blaming something that they know is factually inaccurate. they said that has nothing to do with america, an outright lie, to not only the american people, but the family that lost loved ones. >> yep. the one thing they've decided can't be discussed for the next six weeks is his performance in office. the blame campaign throughout four years has showed you that they're allergic to accountability particularly, but generally when you're allergic to accountability it leads to cover-ups. i've proven they've participated in cover-ups. there's an electronic bonfire in this administration, destroying records. they're on aol for their sleazy programs, the solyndra program and so on. they have a privately-owned computer service for the white house to conduct discussions about confidential troubling u.n. programs that bother a lot of people that they might want to know about this. >> sean: how do you know this? >> from the freedom of information act, investigators, and inter
or not this was a deliberate act, terrorist attack. this is what susan rice said at the time. >> let me tell you the best information we have at present. first of all, there's an fbi investigation that's ongoing. and we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpyred. but putting together the best information we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi in fact was initially a spontaneous reaction to what transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo which were prompted of course by the video. >> there was a caveat there. she said the fbi was still investigating. but the thought was it was a spontaneous reaction. a couple of days before that, the libyan president said, no, in fact, al qaeda was behind this attack. and then days later, after ambassador rice is on this program and other programs, the president's spokesman jay carney says this. it is, i think, self-evident that what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. well, if it was self-evident, why didn't the presid
? the u.n. ambassador susan rice. absolute screwup. >> she was sent out to do that. >> but we don't know by whom. >> okay. >> we don't know. >> let me speculate for you. >> why speculate? >> well, because, this doesn't happen. let me just say something. i'm going to say something both that doug said. presidents when i was in the presidential campaign with jimmy carter we were not allowed to bring foreign policy in, what i said about the president going to las vegas while the consulate was still smolders and goes off for a fundraiser and people would have been crucified. i remember after the seizing of the hostage in '79 when myself and other top members members of the campaign handful of us begged him to campaign we were in a tight race with ted contend. he absolutely refused. i need to be here. i can't do this on the road. >> bill: president obama's decision to go it vegas is obvious. >> but also this narrative to put out a narrative when you know differently as we had heard. >> bill: who put it out. >> the white house. look, you have a national security advisor who was a politician and

the movie. ambassador susan rice blaming the movie. two or three times before he said it's evident it was terrorism. >> bob: did i say it was terrorist? >> eric: you did. talk about the four dead americans. >> bob: i agree with you on that. the rest of the demonstrations are about the movie how do we know where the movie came from? i don't know the answer. >> greg: you are misinterpreting what i'm saying.e about the movie. i care that the movie caused this. that is baloney. the movie got 90% of the people never saw the movie because it was blocked. it's baloney and pretense. why do the press and the administration jump on to it? they believed it. they believe that america at fault for everything. >> bob: true about libya. how does it explain protest in ethiopia -- >> greg: they're idiots. >> eric: stay on libya. four are dead. we'll talk about them later. >> dana: also because it is the american president, secretary of state, everybody else saying loudly it's because of the video fueling the flames. doing public service announcement, it wasn't us now. how many other things will sur
insulting to muslims they knew it was a tres attack. kirsten, was there a coverup? why would they send susan rice so many days later on the talk shows to claim it's spontaneous. >> that's the question. it does appear a coverup and i have been-- judy has been trying to track down exactly what happened and many reporters asking questions and you're told she was operating under the best information she had and clear she was couching is as the latest information a, but she was specific, that's the problem it was just contrary to common sense and to even compare it to what happened in cairo, to say the movie called it. the same thing, that terroris terrorists-- protesters don't carry rpg's anded media has a lack of curiosity about this and should be holding their feet to the fire. >> there's also another element. the 24/7 news cycle, the desire to get something out into the public arena quickly often brings mistakes like this. and i think of colin powell and the demonstration at the u.n. supposedly wmd's in iraq and then he went on all the sunday talk shows. he was talking about what he thought a
that it was deliberate and organized terrorist attack. but administration officials, including ambassador susan rice seemed to go beyond that guidance, stating that benghazi was a demonstration prompted lie that youtube video that spun out of control and fox news was first to report that there was no ongoing demonstration when that attack unfolded, shep. >> shepard: catherine herridge in washington tonight. catherine, thanks very much. >> you're welcome. >> shepard: president obama spoke with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu today about how to deal with iran's suspected nuclear ambitions. according to the white house the two leaders shared goal of preventing iran from making atomic weapons. second phone call amid tension over the prime minister's push for the u.s. to make amore aggressive stance. governor romney spoke with the leader by phone and renewed his attacks on the president for his foreign policy. ed henry with the news live from the white house tonight. president obama is taking heat for not meeting with benjamin netanyahu face to face and today vice president biden addressed
the beginning. it's the video, it's the video. >> no. >> bill: wait a minute. he sent susan rice out there, jay carney. sent them out there for days telling the american people that on the anniversary of 9/11, the attacks on all of our embassies, the death of four americans, was all related to this video, nothing to do with the u.s., nothing to do with the anniversary of 9/11. >> right. >> bill: why does he keep promoting it, so if anybody doesn't know about it they will? >> no. he said in his speech, not just this video, but any video that goes against christianity, offends christianity, jews, anti-semitism, any of that has no place, but it's also no excuse for violence. he made that very clear in the speech, sean. i mean, he did. that's the facts. i mean, the thing is he -- he sat on the world stage and gave that speech, and i thought it was exactly what he needed to say. >> joe, there is no way he could have -- he should have referred to the video almost 10 times in that speech. look, this is a president who is trying to hide the fact that we knew ahead of time that september 11th was going
. the administration was putting its people out on the sunday shows with susan rice on four or five sunday shows to say it was because of the video. this is an astonishing amateur performance. now it's only that we're getting what we should have gotten from the beginning. it's a wonderful difference in the coverage of the two men. >> greta: the domestic coverage, what's going on capitol hill, it's been portrayed, even in the letter they've sent to a number of news organizations complaining about bias, is that the republicans' desire to cut the budget, to start going off a catastrophic fiscal cliff is portrayed as mean and selfish, and not as a -- you know, not as an effort to try to come up with some remedy for the inevitable. >> i've asked the question more than once of people, is will there come a day when people look upon this time and know that there was a party trying to head off a fiscal calamity. i'm not sure -- certainly the journalism isn't being rin, and. it's there. it's serious. >> greta: i think some try harder not to be, but i think it's almost inevitable. i think you try your besting to
by it gets worse and worse for the administration. now to refresh your memory, here is what ambassador susan rice said on september 16. remember, u.s. intelligence officials have told fox news they knew on september 12 it was a terro
the city. and the u.n. ambassador susan rice who has said a few days after the attack, that it appeared to be a spontaneous uprising and the long video. >> and we have reports now that intelligence people knew within 24 hours that this was a terrorist attack and yet, they sent her out, to say things that were absolutely false and continued to do so. and then, as mccain says the violence in lib rah clicks, with the story and al-qaeda diminished. >> for its part. the administration claims the situation in benghazi was so complex, they didn't know for sure that it was a terrorist attack although now they're saying it is. and the obama campaign advisor turned the criticism back to mitt romney. and governor romney leaked that on the libya issue on the first day and was terribly mistake been what he said. and that's not what you want in a president of the united states. >> and democrats say now protecting american personnel going forward, harris. >> harris: you mentioned something i had not read the complexity of the issue around benghazi, the follow-up i would want to ask, well, could you j
to this very offensive video that was disseminated. >> the u.n. ambassador susan rice. two sundays ago, took another three days before the administration began acknowledging what many experts say should have been obvious. >> let me begin by asking you whether you would say that ambassador stevens and the three other americans died as a result of a terrorist attack. >> certainly on that particular question, i would say yes. they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy. >> two days later, secretary of state clinton made it even plainer. >> what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack, and we will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four americans. >> keeping them honest, if the white house wants credit for quickly labeling what happened in benghazi an act of terror, can't also claim credit for prudently not calling it terrorism for so many days. whatever you think, clearly these are two candidates with some big questions to face and perhaps, they will less than 48 hours from now. that debate, a lot to talk about for
